Halloween, Halloween, how I've never really enjoyed you.
Until this year,
When we gathered with friends who are as close as family,
To feed kids bowls of chili,
Before sending them off with the dads for a round a Trick-or-Treating,
While the mamas stayed back to drink wine and pass out candy,
And rate costumes.
Let's do it again next year, shall we?
